Don’t forget the Crutchfield Electronics Recycling truck that will be at the RVCC a week from this coming Saturday on September 6th from 9 AM to 3 PM. That’s the same day as the pancake breakfast. For this one day only, Crutchfield is waiving the normal small fee for you to get rid of most any electronics. Nelson County Life, The RVCC & Crutchfield have all teamed up to bring the truck to Nelson for this one special day. They tell me pretty much anything with a corded plug qualifies!

The second half of the Labor Day weekend looks very nice with sunny skies and pleasant temps. We rise back into the upper 80’s next week.
